Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.
A Psalm of David.
26 Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity; I have [relied on and] trusted [confidently] in the Lord without wavering and I shall not slip. 2 Examine me, O Lord, and try me; Test my heart and my mind. 3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked [faithfully] in Your truth. 4 I do not sit with deceitful or unethical or worthless men, Nor seek companionship with pretenders (self-righteous hypocrites). 5 I hate the company of evildoers, And will not sit with the wicked. 6 I will wash my hands in innocence, And I will go about Your altar, O Lord, 7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders.
8 O Lord, I love the habitation of Your house And the place where Your glory dwells. 9 Do not sweep my soul away with sinners, Nor [sweep away] my life with men of bloodshed, 10 In whose hands is a wicked scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes. 11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; Redeem me and be merciful and gracious to me. 12 My foot stands on a level place; In the congregations I will bless the Lord.
